Ramel International Group, leading conference and event management company with staffing, ticketing and travel services and equipment rentals, won the second spot after placing 64th in the 13th edition, while manufacturing firm, Multi-Pro Private Ltd placed third.

Pan African Bank, Ecobank, was also adjudged among the array of companies as the highest tax payer in the country at the awards night.

Charles Boamah, a Vice-President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), and keynote speaker, noted that it was time Africa moved from seeking investments in billions of U.S. dollars into trillions of dollars.
“These investments must however come in from non-ODA (Overseas Development Assistance) sources,” Boamah stressed.

He said the continent should leverage Pensions funds, mutual funds, private remittances, and other domestic sources for these investments.

Chief of Staff Julius Debrah, who represented President John Dramani Mahama, reiterated government’s commitment to take the necessary actions that would bring back a healthy macro-economic environment.

Mawuena Trebah, Chief Executive Officer of GIPC, said the attention of the GIPC would remain focused on the critical sectors for investors for Ghana to progress to an upper middle income status.

We will continue to grow, we will continue to learn from every experience, we will take feedback from our Club 100 members to inform on the next Club 100 event,” she added. Enditem.
